Word document instantiation problem in doc format (2958)


I am writing to you about the problem we encountered in working with MSO Word document using the Aspose Words for Java library (v21.10).

When we try to load a DOC document an exception is thrown - java.lang.RuntimeException: Unable to instantiate Word Document. However, this is not the case when loading a DOCX document.

In the attachment below, you can find the ZIP file with test code and source DOC file.

Best regards!
